                                                   Account file corrupted, restored from backup. What have I lost?

QuantShare locked up (as I was gathering additional evidence for a bug I had privately reported earlier). When I restarted it, it told me that my account file was corrupted and asked if I wanted to create a new one. I said no and it exited.

I restored "" from a backup earlier in the month. I see that my chart and all of its panes had reverted to what I had earlier. Happily, I saved a copy of my Workspaces (bottom of the screen) just yesterday so I have all of those set back into place.

When I restore an file from backup, what else aside from my charts are going to be out-of-date that I should be taking a look at?

Best Answer
Nothing. If you select on "Yes" then the "" would be recreated from the folders in the "database" folder.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
